I honestly forgot that Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet were happening. We learned that they were together earlier this year, and they were together for maybe six months, tops. They attended a few events together – like the Vanity Fair Oscar party – but they didn’t walk any red carpets together, and there were only a handful of pap strolls as a couple. Well, now Chord and Emma are over. We know because she unfollowed him on Instagram!!
Emma Watson spent years brewing love potions as young witch Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films – and now she might just need one for herself. I’ve learned she has split from her Glee star boyfriend Chord Overstreet following a six-month romance. The couple met at the end of last year, shortly after her two-year relationship with Silicon Valley tech manager William Knight ended. But her latest romance hasn’t lasted either and she made it clear she was done with Chord in a very 21st-century way — by unfollowing him on Instagram.
A source said: “Emma and Chord kept quiet about their relationship at first but they really hit it off. They spent a lot of time together in Los Angeles and were photographed quite a bit just a couple of months ago. But things just haven’t worked out between them and they are both now single again.”
I feel so Millennial by writing this, but I’m writing it anyway: it must have been BAD if she unfollowed him on every social media platform, which is what The Sun says she did. Now Emma’s not following him on Twitter, Instagram or anything else. HARSH. Of course, maybe it was always just an easy fling. I hope that’s the case. I hope Emma dumped him because she wanted a new Summer Boyfriend. We won’t know because Emma – surprisingly – does manage to keep her love life pretty locked down, in the grand scheme of things. She’s never TMI-ing her relationships in interviews or on social media. I wonder who she’ll date now??
